I was recently asked where I stay up to date with web and tech. Twitter, of course but I also review a few websites, Instagram and frequent many Discord and Slack communities. What about you?

For me is mostly Twitter, newsletters and a few RSS feeds. I use to join various slack communities but it was too much noise.

Do you think a blog post needs a featured image? Why? Why not?

I don’t think so, it is a quick way to grab attention or comunícate what does that post talks about but it is a pain to maintain. I use to have my blog this way and finding / making the right image became an obstacle to write more. I would advise to keep it optional.

Just got a DM asking me for a price to use an old dribbble shot I made for a song single. I told him nothing if it puts my name for credits.

He prefers to pay and I'll do some slight changes in return. Is like when you find money on an old jacket🤯

So that’s why they say that the more you do the more lucky you get. I probably should start sharing / posting more. 🤔

A content framework that works:

Tweet about stuff that’s obvious to your peers but can be life changing to your younger self from 3-4 years ago

There are millions of people who could benefit from your unique perspective, wisdom & encouragement

Be a spark for others ⚡️

Spot on! I want to be more active but I tend to wait for that “right tweet” that never shows up and end up thinking that I would never be able to share that much quantity and quality like many.

This advice is a great first step. Thank you.

Is just me or does anyone else find it hard to pay attention to podcasts and audiobooks.

I just drift off 🤦‍♂️

Me too. Podcasts only when driving and I stopped with audiobooks, I was feeling good about myself with all the books I was finishing. But I was just retaining few ideas from each one. I also forget when reading but at least I’m making notes and highlights along the way.

This week, we recall our most recent “wow” moments with the products in our lives. What are yours? In The Sidebar, we talk about different loading state strategies and their impact on the user experience.

I think the last one was while using FigJam, so many great features like adding components.

I’m currently using it to run a design sprint and is working great! More fun and flexible than Mural or Miro in my opinion.

People (myself included), only share the end result, but never the countless revisions and terrible concepts it took them to get there. Don't doubt yourself thinking everyone else gets it right the first time but you. You're doing just fine.

💯 It gets easier with time knowing that is not from idea to a perfection dribbble-like result. I’ve been thinking in creating a small side project showing and talking about those ugly first versions and the progression in designers 🤔

My challenge: - Sometimes I'm super organized (e.g. collecting feedback, turning it into actionable changes in my product, etc.) - However, I tend to lose consistency with this, over time. Can you help me? What can I do to become more consistent with the things I should do?

I’m in the same situation, I lose track and throw any excuse to make me feel a little better. Something that I’m trying is starting small and make the steps easier to do. “Atomic habits”

Somebody should release a dynamic “Cerro de la Silla” dynamic wall paper in time for the release of macOS “Monterrey”.

That’s actually a good idea, I will if I can find a free HQ photo of my beloved “Cerro de la Silla” to work with.

Hello, I’m Noah and I hide in the closet and eat cookies so my kids don’t see.

I don’t hide in the closet I just silently walk to the kitchen and eat them there as quick as possible. 😅

Considering lasik eye surgery. Have you had it done? What are your thoughts?

Life changing, here in Mexico is around $300 dollars with the same professional equipment. I’d bring 2 US friends here to do theirs, couldn’t be happier. Do it!

I'm tryna see something for research purposes. You can only choose one of these to eat. Which one you going with? https://t.co/gwTpNjDYgh

9 is perfect but I’ll go from 8 to 12.
